when we were going to reach

camp. It was  a hard march

but I never let the idea

enter my head to drop out

for I still stick to my old

motto, what another man

can do at enduring anything

I always think I can, + would 

stick it untill I dropped

before drop behind. We

reached camp about 4 o'clock

after what seemed about

a 3 miles march, I was very

hungry never had a bite allday

One of the cooks nearly got

shot accidently when he touched

the trigger on a rifle with a

case of canned goods. We got

supper about 5 o clock canned 

beef bread + coffee. Went to
